Charlottetown Police Services responded to a report of a fisherman that fell off the pier into the water at the Charlottetown Harbour early this afternoon.
It is reported that bystanders attempted to rescue the man but could not reach him in time due to water conditions.
Charlottetown Fire Department, the Canadian Coast Guard and Divers from Divers Quarters from Hazelbrook assisted with the search.
The divers located the deceased 38 year old man within 15 minutes. An autopsy will be performed tomorrow.
Our thoughts are with grieving family and friends during the difficult time.
